Knowledge, Learning, Community

In case you missed it, Audrey Watters top education trends of 2014. Here they are:

  1. Buzzwords
  2. The Business of Ed-tech
  3. School and "Skills"
  4. MOOCS, Outsourcing, and Online Education
  5. Competencies and Certificates
  6. The Common Core State Standards
  7. Data and Privacy
  8. The Indie Web
  9. Social Justice
  10. #Fail

There's a certain cynicism informing this list, which I think is unavoidable if you stary in the business of covering the field long enough. This, I think, is where my role is different: I not only cover the field, but I'm deeply engaged in building as well, which allows me to take hope in something, even if it's only my own efforts.
